FC Nürnberg striker Josip Drmic could be in line for a switch to Premier League title contenders Arsenal.

According to reports from German newspaper Bild cited by The Metro, the Gunners are eyeing a move for Drmic - a player who Arsene Wenger has been tracking for many months - with a new striker at the top of the club's list of summer priorities.

21-year-old Drmic, a full Switzerland international with five senior caps to his name, has been at the Stadion Nürnberg for a little under a year after joining from Swiss Super League side FC Zurich last summer.

Drmic - who also represented his country at the 2012 Olympic Games in London two years ago - has adapted well to life in the Bundesliga, notching 11 goals in his first 23 appearances.

Arsenal's dire need for a new striker is plainly clear for all to see, with many fans frankly gobsmacked that Wenger did not sufficiently address this issue during the recent January transfer window with such a gruelling run of fixtures ahead.

While Olivier Giroud did notch a welcome brace during the club's emphatic and impressive 4-1 win over Everton in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup at the Emirates Stadium last weekend, he has largely struggled to capture the form that saw him enjoy such a prosperous start to his second campaign in North London.

With Nicklas Bendtner's contract set to expire at the end of the season and German international Lukas Podolski - who certainly would have done his reputation no harm whatsoever with a stunning goal against Bayern Munich on Tuesday night - the subject of transfer interest, it is clear Wenger must do something.

Although, with the figure of Yaya Sanogo already playing the role of inexperienced back-up striker, it may be that Arsenal require someone slightly more reputable than the in-form Drmic.
